Following the huge success of our ‘NOW Yearbook’ series, we are thrilled to announce the next generation… introducing ‘NOW Millennium’ – continuing to celebrate the eclectic brilliance of Pop, now from the noughties and capturing the magic of Pop with two years on one volume. We are proud to present the first instalment of this series: NOW - Millennium 2000 - 2001 - 83 tracks across 4CDs with each pair of discs representing a year. This Special Edition CD is housed in ‘hard-back-book’ packaging, including a 28-page booklet featuring a summary of the year, a track-by-track guide, a quiz, and original singles artwork.
CD 1 and CD 2 are packed with massive hits, taking you back to the year 2000 with U2’s ‘Beautiful Day’ and Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’, followed by chart favourites; R.E.M. and Sting. 2000 was a fantastic year for Pop groups, giving us #1s from All Saints and Spice Girls, plus more era-defining #1s from Robbie Williams, Craig David, LeAnn Rimes, and Manic Street Preachers. We couldn’t omit Bon Jovi’s enduring classic ‘It’s My Life’, and Oasis’ ‘Go Let It Out’ – the perfect track to close disc one – but we don’t stop there with this incredible line up of Y2K hits, as Britney Spears kicks off disc 2 with ‘Oops!...I Did It Again’, followed by A1’s ‘Take On Me’, Kylie Minogue’s ‘Spinning Around’, Gabrielle’s ‘Rise’, and what better way to round off the year 2000 than with the legendary vocalist, Sade, with her timeless hit ‘By Your Side’.
CD 3 and CD 4 are all about 2001. CD 1 begins with Kylie’s biggest hit ‘Can't Get You Out Of My Head’ and further features more dancefloor Pop favourites, including unforgettable #1s from S Club 7 (‘Don't Stop Movin'’) and Roger Sanchez (‘Another Chance’), followed by Alcazar’s ‘Crying At The Discoteque’ and Cher’s ‘The Music's No Good Without You’. For fans of legendary R&B Pop, we have Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Eve & Gwen Stefani, and Shaggy & Ricardo Ducent. CD 3 closes with tracks that truly stood the test of time - Nelly Furtado’s ‘I'm Like A Bird’, and ‘Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me)’ from Train. The last disc underlines the musical diversity of 2001 as we open with a returning giant of music, Elton John, with his superb track ‘I Want Love’, followed by hugely influential artists Radiohead, Stereophonics, and New Order, plus room for the pure Pop of Blue, Steps, Dido, Westlife, and Atomic Kitten.
